If you shop at Aldi, you would know Wednesday and Saturdays are the greatest day to do so, with the German supermarket giant’s middle aisles filled with massively marked down products.

You would also know these products tend to sell out, meaning you’ve most likely missed out on a Special Buy or two.

But an Aldi staff member has revealed how to make sure you never miss a beat.

“Ring 13ALDI they will be able to tell you which stores have what you’re looking for,” she wrote in an Aldi Facebook group.

“Each time a new special comes out we condense down as many tables on the shop floor as possible but mostly we have to remove some tables and put them out the back in the store warehouse.


“It always pays to ask a worker if they could check out the back if theres no stock on the shop floor.”

And, savvy members of the Aldi Facebook group also shared their tips and tricks to make sure you never miss a beat.

According to one user, leftovers from the sales get sent to a particular store, where they remain until they eventually sell out.

“Leftovers get shipped to other stores to centralise stock sometimes. I called up after the snow gear sale and found out two other stores where all the stock was sent to be cleared out. I don’t think they do this for all special buys though, others get cleared out in store,” she wrote.

It’s also worth just asking an Aldi staff member if they still have the product as according to another member, leftover stock is stored there.

“There is an annual pattern to quite a lot of the special buys,” another user shared, which means it pays to remember when they go on sale so you can ensure you don’t miss it the following year.
